Thanks for a very warm welcome! and it's so good to see your names again Amy and Bev. 
And I also must say it's so good to "hear" too many of you in the KAS podcast and put voice to names :). I just heard some of the early episodes and heard Amy when she visited the KAS barn on her vacation to South Africa back in early 2020 before the pandemic hit.

A brilliant project from you and your colleagues, Kiran, with wonderful work from everyone. The results are amazing.

WOW you have been busy, so glad you made time to share this all with us. Good to hear from you again. Keep up the good work.

Thanks Marion and Dawn!

This is Block 16 from the Wildlife Graphghan by My Hobby is Crochet, a Parrot Square. 
I used a Waffle stitch border to make it 16x16”. This helped to straighten it out as it had pulled in a bit with all the colour changes.

Wow Marion that's beautiful! it must have taken you a very long time and a lot of patience. It's going to look spectacular in a blanket.

This is amazing, can't wait to see it in a blanket.

Marion, your parrot is unique! Believe me or not  on my "must to do list" is also a parrot! But I´ve got only two rather old hands and nowadays I fell in love with making toys. So, perhaps later.

Another stunner Marion! What a beautifully crafted parrot, this colourful chap will delight a child :)) 

Thank you ladies for all your kind comments.

Wow Marion!! Your parrot is STUNNING!! Sooooo colourful. I LOVE it to bits.  :))

Incredible, Marion. You must get such a sense of achievement making these amazing picture squares.
